DIY Cleaning Tips:

Washing Up
  • Remove smells from reusable bottles - sprinkle with Bicarbonate of soda and leave overnight.
  • Porcelain stained by tea, coffee - Scrub using a cloth soaked in baking soda, the stain will disappear in no time.
Laundry
  • Fabric softener: Put 1/4 glass of bicarbonate and 3/4 glass of water in the rinse part of your washing machine.
  • Stain remover: Soak for a few hours in a bowl of hot water with a glass of Bicarbonate of soda. Then rinse a little and put in the washing machine.
  • Laundry: Add bicarbonate to your laundry to increase the effectiveness of your eco-friendly detergents. It also acts as a deodoriser, revives the colours and avoids the accumulation of limescale.
  • Laundry deodoriser: To remove the chlorine odour from your bath towels, add bicarbonate when washing, or in the rinse cycle water.
  • Washing machine descaler: To prevent the formation of scale in your machine (valid for the dishwasher too, coffee maker, teapot by adjusting the dose), perform once a month, wash with 150 g of baking soda.
Cleaning
  • Carpets, Mattresses & sofas: sprinkle with Bicarbonate of soda, rub, let stand for 1 hour, then vacuum. The fabric will be cleaned and deodorised.
  • Mix with water to create a paste: Clean chrome, stainless steel, gold and silver with your paste. Apply, leave briefly, rinse with hot water, then polish. Scrub the sink, oven, cutting board, grill and more.
  • Use powder as a scourer: apply bicarbonate, rub with a sponge/cloth and rinse.
  • Stain and mould cleaning cream with vinegar: the chemical reaction makes the mixture lather! Protect yourself well before you start; or replace the vinegar with clean water or mix ¼ cup of bicarbonate with liquid castile soap. This mixture can be used to remove food stains and/or mould in a refrigerator and a freezer. Depending on the stains, increase the proportion of sodium bicarbonate in the water (3 measures of bicarbonate for a measurement of water). Apply this scouring cream with a sponge or cloth to stain.

Or spray the walls of the oven with water, cover with Bicarbonate of soda, spray again. Leave it a overnight. Remove the powder with a vegetable soap (castile/Marseille), rinse thoroughly with water.
